Expo City Dubai: Things you’ll find when site opens in under 2 months
Expo City Dubai is gearing up to open on 1 October, building on Expo 2020 Dubai’s pledge to inspire generations of the future.
Visitors are invited to experience two of Expo City Dubai’s most popular pavilions beginning on September 1, with the re-opening of Alif – The Mobility Pavilion and Terra – The Sustainability Pavilion marking the first chapter of Expo City Dubai’s journey.
Tickets, which cost 50 dirhams per person per pavilion, are available at the city’s website and can be purchased at four box offices at Expo City Dubai from September 1. Garden in the Sky, with its 360-degree views, will also open on Sept.1, with tickets priced at 30 dirhams each. Attractions are free for children aged 12 and under and People of Determination.
Terra – a world-class example of sustainable best practice in architecture and design – will encourage visitors to re-evaluate their relationship with the environment through an exciting journey through ocean and forest, while Alif will transport explorers through time and across new horizons to discover how mobility has driven human progress throughout history. Alif and Terra will be open daily from 10:00-18:00, while Garden in the Sky will open from 15:00-18:00, extending to 10:00-18:00 from 16 September onwards.
Other Expo 2020 Dubai attractions – including Al Wasl Plaza, the Women’s Pavilion, and the Vision Pavilion, as well as children’s playgrounds and the carousel – will open in October. Later this year, the Opportunity Pavilion will become the Expo 2020 Dubai Museum – a new addition highlighting the history and impact of World Expos and celebrating the success of Expo 2020 Dubai.
Expo City Dubai is also looking forward to the return of UAE students, with the Expo School Program preparing an evolving array of interesting educational experiences, exhibits, and interactive workshops, reflecting the themes of the pavilions.
Expo City Dubai is easily accessed by metro, car, and taxi. Parking, including dedicated parking for People of Determination, is available at Al Forsan, Jubilee, Mobility, and Sustainability.
